Chanteuses Canadiennes

Canada has given us many things--Steve Nash, poutine, an inferiority complex about our national health system--but more than all of that, they have given us great music by some beautiful women. I've already mentioned a few on this blog (variations of Broken Social Scene & Neko Case, who is, seriously, an honorary Canadian), but here are a few more. Thanks to a mysterious commenter named "Bunny" for the suggestion.

Feist, "I Feel It All"--You're sick of 1234, but not of this!


Emily Haines, “Our Hell”--Another BSS collaborator. And a great song.


Tegan and Sara, “Back in Your Head” --The catchiest song of Summer 07.


Sarah Harmer, “Basement Apt.”--This song is new to me, too...


Be Good Tanyas, “The Littlest Birds” --Didn't even know they were Canadian.


Leonard Cohen, “The Future” (Live on Jools Holland)--Not a woman, but the greatest Canadian singer EVER! I love how he turns the lyric "anal sex" into "careless sex" for this television version.




Digg!

A lovely tribute to talented Canadian ladies, and man. :) How cool is that Feist video? A feat of timing seeing as it appears to be recorded on one continuous shot.

Je crois que Bunny a demand� des chanteuses quebecois et pas de canadiennes.

Bunny said...

N'importe pas. Avec Emily Haines on n'a pas besoin des autres chanteuses!!!

Phillippe said...

Ouais, mais on ne peut pas oublier l'importance de Céline Dion. On ne peut pas avoir le blog des chateuses canadiennes ou quebecoises et ignorer Céline. C'est pas possible!

Bunny said...

J'en ai marre de Céline!!! On peut parler aussi d'Alanis, Shania, Sarah, KD avant de discuter Céline.

Phillippe said...

MAIS TU AS DEMANDÉ DES CHANTEUSES QUEBECOISES! N'EST PAS? EST-CE QU'IL Y A DES CHANTEUSES QUEBECOIS À PART DE CÉLINE?

Bunny said...

Bien sûr qu'il y a des autres chanteuses quebecoises. Lis le reste du blog!!! Ce n'est pas un blog de la musique comme Céline.

TIFFANY said...
